Learning For All...Whatever It Takes

  • November 30, 2020 – December 4, 2020

    Dear Parents, Guardians, Staff and Students:

    With Thanksgiving weekend behind us, it is back to business with all of our District schools open for hybrid learning. The morning of November 30, 2020, the doors of 79th Street School, Cataract Elementary, and GJ Mann Elementary were reopened for Blue hybrid students. On Thursday, December 3, 2020, Gold hybrid students return(ed) to the classroom. Thank you to hybrid teachers, parents and students at 79th Street School, Cataract Elementary and GJ Man Elementary for orchestrating a return to fully remote learning so quickly and successfully. I am so proud of our District and our ability to adapt.

    This week we will be presenting a demonstration of the District’s COVID-19 testing. We will be releasing a YouTube video featuring yours truly and District Medical Director Dr. Jo Silvaroli that shows the entire testing process. The District will be opening our own COVID-19 testing site shortly – stay tuned to our All Calls, YouTube videos, website and social media for all updates.

    If you are having problems with your District-issued laptop, please bring it to our Roving Repair Team; they are happy to assist. The team is available at various schools and times on Tuesdays and Fridays. School locations and times can be found on the District’s website homepage,

    Let’s keep our spirits up and let’s keep showing our civic pride by following all of the recommendations of the CDC. The holidays may be different this year, but they can still be merry and bright.

  • The Niagara Falls City School District is currently in the Hybrid Learning model. In the event of inclement weather, the Superintendent of Schools may require totally remote learning for all students and staff in lieu of school cancellation on a day to day basis.
